    I’d love to get this Drift model if I didn’t completely hate Drift as a character. Kinda wish Flame Toys had skewed the likeness a bit to make him more generic giant robot.

    I was actually thinking of modding the head and repainting it into Armada Wheeljack because of the swords.

    Very much agree. I'm for a certain degree of stylization; I think this Primal still turned out very well. Maaaybe he's a little bulky? Kinda pointy, to be honest- but I can appreciate the aesthetic, and he'd make an excellent addition to any collection for sure. But really, as a consumer, what I want is some models that capture the spirit of IDW and Alex Milne inspired designs. This Rodimus is more in my wheelhouse, and I thoroughly appreciate it.

    I am in fact a huge anime fan, but... I don't like this Windblade design because it's just not what I want out of a Transformers figure.

    I am still hopeful that maybe someone will come along with more IDW inspired designs for figures in the future that cater to fans with those tastes.

    Yeah I really want that as well. 3K Windblade IDW style would be totally killer. Have the cool IDW guys and girls immortalised in such high grade form.

    I'm gonna ask a stupid question, do any of these require glue?

    IDW Prime's head antennae just would not stay on, so I needed to glue that. The instructions also recommend glue for parts that get stress like around joints, but I've never glued those and never had any issues.

    Not really IDW Magnus, but that design sure looks good in white too.

    That was the highlight of Dreamwave for me. Not having seen an actual G1 UM before, I was so surprised. Now its old hat I guess

    Agreed. The white prime is so cool. There’s tones of great transformers that really own the white colour scheme.
